FMC reviews 7 OTI applications, revokes 2 licenses
The U.S. Federal Maritime Commission has received seven ocean transportation intermediary license applications for review.
The agency received non-vessel-operating common carrier license applications from Raylink Shipping, Brooklyn, N.Y. (Tao Zhang, president); AA Connection, Bellevue, Wash. (Mei Mao, manager); Cybamar Swiss, Zurich, Switzerland (Bassem Salhab, managing director); and Superior International Group, Walnut, Calif. (Steven Wong, president).
The FMC also received an NVO-ocean freight forwarder license application from Transportation Freight Group, Atlanta (Chad Rosenberg, member); and ocean freight forwarder license applications from Cycle Logical Supply Chain Solutions, Clanton, Ga. (Sheila Hines Hewitt, president); and Star USA, Ashland, Ohio (Margaret S. Easton, president).
Persons knowing of any reason why an applicant should not receive an OTI license are urged to contact the FMC’s Office of Transportation Intermediaries in Washington at (202) 523-5843.
The FMC also revoked two OTI licenses for failure to maintain valid bonds. The firms are Braverman Enterprises of Los Angeles and Eastern Freight Forwarders in Riviera Beach, Fla.
